Chinese manufacturing giant, Huawei, has been at the hub of several controversies which is crippling its smartphone business. Presently, Huawei can not use American technologies that have any relationship with 5G. The company can not also use the complete Android suit. This makes it difficult for Huawei to release flagships with global appeal. However, the company has since said that it will not give up on its smartphone business. According to Huawei, it is not competing in the smartphone market, it is only just trying to survive. About three months ago, the company unveiled its latest flagship, the Huawei P50 series. After the launch of this series, there were reports that we will not see another flagship from Huawei this year. However, we now have a report relating to the Huawei Mate 50 Pro.
According to David Naranjo, a senior expert from DSCC, the Huawei Mate 50 Pro is in development. The report further claims that this flagship smartphone is still planned for the fourth quarter of this year. As of now, the speculations points to an October launch date. However, this is only a professional speculation based on industry sources. Considering the irregularities and uncertainties surrounding Huawei presently, we can not be too sure of any unofficial report.
From the information online, Huawei will have a global launch event in October (21:00, October 21, Beijing time) in Vienna, Austria. A mobile phone did appear in the preheating poster. However, the guesses are that this smartphone will be the Huawei P50 series global version or Huawei nova 9. Could this smartphone be the Huawei Mate 50 series? We will have to wait a few more weeks to find out.
Huawei Mate 50 series is coming
According to Huawei’s practice of previous years, it will hold the representative P series flagship new product launch conference in the first half of the year, around April. However, due to well-known reasons, the release time of Huawei’s new-generation, Huawei P50 series flagship was postponed. The Mate series, which usually arrives around August in previous years, did not launch. There were rumors that the company will cancel the Mate series. However, the latest report shows that the Huawei Mate 50 series will not be the last Mate device.
According to Weibo leakster, @菊厂影业Fans, Huawei Mate series may only be late, but will not stop. He further claims that even if there is no new model this year, it will be launch next year. While the information reassures Huawei fans that the Huawei Mate 50 is coming, it cast some doubt about its launch date. However, with the recent news, we can now look towards October and see what happens.
